I’m thankful for mortality because it enables me to live in each moment.
I’m thankful all those times Dad pointed out my driving mistakes (and scolded me) because I learned to navigate the roads cautiously.
I’m thankful for the, albeit brief, pockets of time for meaningful conversations because they remind me that materialism hasn’t swallowed me whole.
I’m thankful for great food because everyone deserves a small reward for long, stressful weeks.
I’m thankful for rubber flip-flops because as long as I have them, I can wade through the flooded streets.
I’m thankful for November because we’re now just a month away from Christmas, which is one holiday I’m also grateful for.
Caught in a rut? Think of everything that you’re most grateful for and tell me about it.
